and unacceptable. yesterday the secretary of health and human services kathleen sebelius testified before the senate committee and tried to address some of those democratic concerns. >> while we don't have the fully functioning system yet that consumers need and deserve, we do have a plan in place to identify, pryorioritizeprioritize and manage the remaining fixes across the system. >> what we've receive the past week or so with more and more democrats coming out and trying to distance themselves not from the health care law itself which they all by and large still support, but from the way the website was rolled out and the way that the administration has handled the fallout from that. here's why democrats have concern. if you look at cbs exit polling from the virginia governor's race on tuesday, 53% of voters in that state said that they oppose the health care law and ken cuccinelli the republican won 81% of those voters. now, he still lost the race norah, charlie, and gayle, but not by as much as everyone expected. just two points. >> nancy cordes thank you.

of the republican party, and then the obamacare website fiasco comes in, president obama and kathleen sebelius has not handled this well. they have not given us the numbers who had signed up. president obama has backed down on his promise that people wouldn't lose their insurance plans, and would be able to stay with their own doctors. does the democratic party have to be worried seeing what's happened today? >> yeah, simply because in both new jersey and virginia obama's popularity has really sunk, specifically since four years ago just after he got elected. obama is not a popular figure right now. his national poll ratings are below 40% for the first time ever. he's unpopular in virginia. he's unpopular in new jersey. christie took advantage that have, ken cuccinelli could not do it. what it says to the democrats is that you're in trouble, democrats, but the only thing you have to rely on is the ability for republicans to commit suicide. >> the gallop tracking poll has president obama's approval rating down near his all-time low at 39%. jim, your reaction to what bill just said? >> well, i mean,

. this is not a relaunch of the obama in care web site. wait a second, wasn't it kathleen sebelius say to congress this was a magic day. we have been waiting three years, hundreds of millions of dollars this is the day and it's not going to work. here is the question. why hasn't she been fired? >> why has no one been fired for this debacle inside the white house? >> rejiggering and creating a war room. jeffrey zions creating war room to look at the engineering. no one was fired. instead what they did was brought them all together in one room so they can work more collaboratively. >> she got up in front of congress saying november 30th this will be done and if not, today is the day, we have 55 minutes until this relaunch and it's not going to work. >> success is only 80%, mind you. if it's working 80% for the majority of the people for the majority of the time then it's going to, with. i think it's a lot easier to reboot a web sight though than it is to, you know, power down or to reboot the trust of the american people what's that what allen west is saying about this. the president's credibility i
the way this was developed, kathleen sebelius couldn't house the people working on the website in her office because of various fears regarding partisan political environment, funding, a host of issues. are you more confident the system they have in place now, the folks they are bringing in, the outside consultants are going to have an easier, less thorny time unraveling problems with this website they would have had six months ago? it seems the climate around the aca was no less heated than it was preelection. >> there's no question they obviously have a better management in place, property back jeffrey zients, former director, quite capable, president is involved, getting nightly briefings on it. there's no question they have a more concerted focus and better management structure for getting this done. whether they will actually fix the website by the end of november remains to be seen because it is such a formidable task. that still remain to be seen. >> it is an exhaustive and thorough piece. thank you so much for report, "washington post." that you for your time. >> thank you. >>
. you can imagine, martha, if there were a change at the top, if kathleen sebelius was fired, he would be left with a vacancy at top of hhs and a long drawn-out confirmation battle. >> matthew dowd, let's turn to you, it sounds for policy reasons and efficiency reasons, perhaps, they shouldn't have any heads rolling right now, but the optics of this are so bad. >> to rebuild trust is to bring new people in. to me this presidency and actually the last presidency that i was involved in with the elections they have done a great job of delegation but they haven't a great job of the second half of a mba person which is accountability. to enforce accountability is to bring in new people when something like this happens. i think at some point, the president needs to demonstrate, i can delegate things but i can also hold accountable people. when things are messed up. >> david plouffe, is that what you would do? >> i think they're in triage as jonathan said. once the website gets fixed, what do i need to have confidence going forward to implement this law? not only in the comes months, but the
indicated they have expected them to be very low. that was the exact language used by kathleen sebelius. they criteria the example of massachusetts wherein the first month of what was a year-long enrollment period, just 123 people signed up, which was just .3% of the entire number. perhaps more significantly right now, one of the bigger concerns for this white house is the scramble to try to fix the website, to try to improve the total number of individuals that sign up. the number by the cbo, the suggestion was that they wanted to have about 7 million people signed up over the course of the six-moen rollment period. but jeffrey zients acknowledged it was not really clear whether they would be all set by the end of the month, saying we are not where we need to be. we're not where we want to be, to use his exact language. >> and yet the president has given himself, as it were, that deadline of the end of this month, isn't he? >> yeah, that's exactly right. this has been something very important to the president over the weekend. white house aides confirmed to me, there was an unsparing d
. they tell kathleen sebelius that. >> for the democratic congressional committee, yes, they do want to be in front of those people. it is noticed that they aren't giving to the congressional committee. the president, in fact, is the only draw here. >> a quick break. when we come back, what should president obama be thankful for at this thanksgiving? we're going to ask the brain trust right after this. populatin is going to grow by over 90 million people, and almost all that growth is going to be in cities. what's the healthiest and best way for them to grow so that they really become cauldrons of prosperity and cities of opportunity? what we have found is that if that family is moved into safe, clean affordable housing, places that have access to great school systems, access to jobs and multiple transportation modes then the neighborhood begins to thrive and then really really take off. the oxygen of community redevelopment is financing. and all this rebuilding that happened could not have happened without organizations like citi. citi has formed a partnership with our company so th
people have a lot of thoughts, but i have some, too. kathleen sebelius made all kinds of promises, she's broken every one of them. she's become part of the fantasy land villains of disney world in some way. she can't get anything right. nancy pelosi said they're still looking through and trying to figure out what obamacare will be. but how about this guy, donald berwick? he's the former cms administrator. he was the guy that was speaking in favor of english, of british, of health care. he had written about the importance of rationing. he's not there anymore. now he's running for governor. he put us in the dumper big, big time. >> he wanted to be governor of what state? >> massachusetts, i think. >> perfect. >> be careful. not good. >> there is somebody we've seen on television tangling with megyn kelly a couple of nights. you suggest ezekiel emmanuel. >> he had a meltdown on megyn kelly and said that somehow it was a self-fulfilling prophecy and that fox was responsible for the web site not going up and the numbers not working out at all. >> how did we do that? >> how about dennis mcdo
30th, when the site, like any website, doesn't perform optimum. >> kathleen sebelius says they are in for a different experience. didn't say better. but obama told small businesses they will not be able to buy insurance through the online exchanged as promised. they will have to go through insurance companies or brokers. but the individual mandates span. >> if you are an individual who is not the individual of the benefits, the mandate applies to you. you will say why am i not getting special treatment. >> the white house says the website is on track to handle 50,000 users some saturday. and they said there were still plenty of bugs to be fixed. >> hedging their bets for sure. let's look at the big picture on this and the impact it might have. right now, 7.3% is the unemployment claim. will the new delay give the small businesses breathing room? maybe they will hire more people. bob is here with us. happy thanksgiving. >> happy thanksgiving. >> i was curious if people can be optimistic and have hope about new jobs. if small businesses get the break, what do you think? >> i

he does and if kathleen sebelius has time to go to cocktail parties which she does, then todd park ought to have cometime to come to tell people he works for why they got such a poor product after spending half a billion dollars and three years. bill: do you expect that money to go higher? how much more do they need to spend to get it right? >> if they want the product to work they will have to spend. the first half a billion dollars didn't get the job done. to say it's a train wreck is an insult to train wrecks. it is doing very, very poorly. yes, it needs to be fixed. how much more money? who knows. that is one of the things hopefully someone will ask mr. park this week. bill: enrollment numbers are expected this week. i don't know if it is midweek or end of this week but what is your expectations when it comes to the enrollment numbers? >> well, bill, if the enrollment numbers were good we would already have them. you and i both know that they are going to be dismal. the last estimate i saw was 1100 a people a day. i was not good in math but at 313 million people in the country,
